How Vote Compass Works

Launch Vote Compass

Getting started is easy. With no login, and no registration, you keep control of your info. All you need is a postal or zip code so we can determine your district, electorate or riding.

Take the questionnaire

A Vote Compass questionnaire is typically 30 questions and takes about 10 minutes to complete. Once you finish, Vote Compass will analyse your responses and compare them with the policies of the candidates.

See the results

Your Vote Compass results show you how your views compare to the policy proposals of the candidates and help you understand how you fit into the political landscape. You can see where you agree and disagree with each of the candidates.

Explore the issues

Once you see how you fit in, Vote Compass lets you dive deep into the platforms of each party or candidate with comparisons by topic, candidate statements, and options to weight the issues most important to you.

Big Data, big possibilities

Vote Compass promotes an informed electorate but it also channels the voice of the people.

The millions of responses to Vote Compass generate unprecedented stores of public opinion data, which can be leveraged to prompt governments to be more responsive to the views of the citizens they represent.

Vote Compass was created by the scientists at Vox Pop Labs.
